Facial rejuvenation is a growing field within dermatology. Newer, nonablative approaches to resurfacing have the potential to revolutionize this field because of their advantages over traditional ablative techniques. A most notable advantage is the lack of downtime. Studies have indicated that the histologic effect of these nonablative approaches is collagen remodeling. Clinical effects have not been as impressive, but excellent results have been shown in some studies. Nonablative lasers and radiofrequency devices show tremendous potential in the treatment of photoaged skin, and further work should more clearly demonstrate their utility.
